印尼海啸:21岁英雄空管员留守塔台殉职感动印尼_最新英语新闻

He is our national hero, says Batik Airways pilot Ricosetta Mafella.

“他是我们的国家英雄,”巴泽航空飞行员马菲拉说。

He is describing the Indonesian air traffic controller whose last act before he died was making sure the plane safely escaped the earthquake and tsunami.

他说的是印度尼西亚空中交通管制员阿贡。阿贡在生前最后一刻确保马菲拉驾驶的飞机安全逃离地震和海啸。

Mr Mafella believes Mr Agung may have saved his life and those of his passengers. He has described him as a "guardian angel".

马菲拉认为,阿贡可能救了他和所有乘客的性命,并称他为“守护天使”。

’Clear for take-off’

“可以起飞”

On Friday afternoon, Anthonius Gunawan Agung, 21, was at the control tower of Palu airport as Mr Mafella’s Batik Airways plane was on the runway.

上周五下午(9月28日),21岁的阿贡在印尼中苏拉威西省帕卢机场控制塔台值班,而马菲拉驾驶的巴泽航空飞机在跑道上准备起飞。

I was rushing to leave. There was a voice in my head that told me, just get out of here immediately, said Mr Mafella, 44. "I told my crew and the ground crew to speed up."

“我急着离开,脑子里有个声音在对我说,马上离开这里,”44岁的马菲拉说,“我让机上工作人员和地勤加快速度。”

At 18:02, the plane took off. Less than a minute later, the 7.5 magnitude quake struck.

18时02分,飞机起飞。不到一分钟后,印尼发生7.5级地震。

As the control tower started to shake, people around Mr Agung fled, but he watched to make sure the plane was airborne. His last words were "Batik 6321 clear for take off".

机场控制塔台开始摇晃时,阿贡周围的其他工作人员逃离了塔台,但阿贡仍然坚守岗位,确保飞机能起飞。他生前最后一句话是:“巴泽航空6321可以起飞。”

Then, apparently finding his way out blocked, he jumped from the crumbling tower. He died while awaiting treatment.

然后,他就从摇摇欲坠的塔台上跳了下来,显然,他发现路被堵住了。阿贡在等待救治时去世。

Mr Mafella and the 147 passengers and crew on the flight had no idea what had just happened on the ground. But from the cockpit, Mr Mafella saw huge waves at the coastline.

马菲拉和机上的147名乘客和空乘完全不知道地面上发生了什么事情,但是从驾驶舱内,马菲拉看到了海岸线旁的巨浪。

I saw it was a wave moving in a circle with a huge radius, it was getting bigger and bigger but I didn’t know what it was, Mr Mafella told the BBC.

“我看到一个半径很大、以圆形移动的海浪,并且越来越大,我不知道那是什么,”他说。

I tried calling the air traffic controller a few times to tell him that I saw something, but there was no answer.

我打给空中交通管制员好几次,想告诉他我看到的东西,但是没有回应。”

Mr Mafella only found out later why his calls went unanswered. "I’m in a WhatsApp group with other air traffic controllers and one of them told me that they had asked Agung to get away from the tower," said Mr Mafella. "But he said wait, wait, Batik [Air] is still here."

马菲拉之后才知道他的电话为什么没有回应。“我在一个WhatsApp群组中,里面有其他空中交通管制员,其中一位告诉我,他们叫阿贡离开塔台,”马菲拉说,“但是他说,等一等,等一等,巴泽(航空)还在这儿。”

When I found out what happened, I was speechless.

“我知道事情经过后,不知道该说什么。”
